Kenny Chesney is co-hosting Country Countdown USA with Lon Helton this weekend and Lon asked him about his 2012 plans:

Lon’s next question: I hear you have something blockbuster planned for 2012? “You may be right! I may be crazy.”

Will you have a new album in 2012? “Not sure. Depends on this fall, and how far we get. There’s gonna be an album at some point. I’ve got a few songs I really love and fit me. For me, I gotta find songs that push me and push the audience, but still be true to who I am. That’s a fine line for me, and do something I haven’t done before. So I’ve got all that in mind when I do that.”

In the interview, Kenny also talks about a gift that Zac Brown gave him on the tour:

When we caught up with Kenny at the Meadowlands Stadium, he was holding on to a very unusual coffee mug, and he told Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton that it was a gift from Zac: “You see this glass right here? I don’t know what this is, but I think Zac made this thing. Zac can do everything. He’s a computer genius, great songwriter, great cook, I don’t think there’s anything Zac can’t do. We’ve had a blast with Zac and his band & crew. The moment they come on stage to do the encore, the fans love it. When the tour started, nobody knew “Knee Deep.” Now when we do Knee Deep and it’s incredible, people love that song, what a great record. I said to him ‘Thanks for doing Knee Deep, you made our show great!’ So we do that and a couple other things, and I respect Zac a lot.”

    Got to hear some of it…… thinks that the big surprise in 2012 is not only a local tour but an international as in Europe and down under. It has been 10 yrs in 2012 since he started headlining. It is time for him to go across the pond and down under……..It will keep them all on the road alot longer……rock bands do it: the Stones, U2, Bon Jovi….they all tour for 12 months somtimes 18 months so I think that is the big surprise.
